Men’s Winter LOOK BOOK: The Desert Bixby, The American Steeler, and The Urban Conductor

It’s the beginning of the year and the coldest  part of winter is about to hit. So, we wanted to suggest a few under coat layering options. I styled 3 looks on TUG ambassador Ben Swann to pay homage to early 1900s America, mixing hard edge workwear with southern sensibilities. 

A Man’s Winter. So what is a man’s winter? It’s stylish, yet simple. Detailed, but not ostentatious. It’s a layered tribute to his favorite styles. And it provides the opportunity to showcase his entire essence in one glance.


1: Desert Bixby 
Faded desert palette meets good ole boy. Stag Provisions, the company that provided our threads, is a Texas based company, so we mixed in a of bit southwest flavoring for the first look. The sandy coloring of the entire ensemble, the shirt pattern, and of course the desert boots gives us SW. While the shawl collar sweater, argyle socks, and fedora gives us classic casual 1950s southern gentleman. I especially love this look without the cardigan… its so simple and refreshing. Although many of us naturally wear dark colors in the winter, lighter hues display beautifully in crowds full of humdrum gray and black apparel. 

WINTER COAT: This look should be paired with a classic peacoat – navy, olive, tan, or beige. Scroll the options below:

STYLE DETAILS: Universal Works Olive Shawl Cardigan; Alex Mill Horizontal Donegal Shirt; Save Khaki Slub Twill Jeans; Yellow Luke Fedora; Clarks Desert Boot; Timex Weekender Watch; Garrett Leight Harding Sunglasses; Wooden TUG Pinback; Vinatage Beaded Bracelet; Bronze Pin.

Parks and Recreation: Summertime Style.

Parks & Recreation: Snapback & Tees (Summer Edition).

(behind-the-scenes video of Parks & Recreation: Summertime Style)

Lately we've been so caught up in button-downs, selvedge denim, shawl collar cardigans, and double-breasted blazers that we've forgotten about the relaxed easiness of a simple t-shirt and shorts. So we pulled out the snapbacks, fresh tees, a variety of shorts, and matching accessories to help get you through what seems to be the hottest days of summertime. Also, introducing, Ben Swann #TeamTUG.
